Remix the washing machine drummer and win Ableton Live

Submitted by on August 6, 2010 – 12:05 pm 157 Comments

OK, I was just so infatuated with the washing machine drums video, that it would be criminal not to remix those drums into a song.

So we’re going to have a remix contest! Ableton has generously offered a free copy of Ableton live 8 (download) for the contest.

Ableton Live is about making music; for composition, songwriting, recording, production, remixing and live performance. Live’s nonlinear, intuitive flow, alongside powerful real-time editing and flexible performance options, make it a unique studio tool and a favorite with live performers. If you’d rather be “making music” than just “using music software,” Ableton Live is for you. Live 8, the latest version, includes a wealth of new techniques and improvements with a new groove engine, revamped warping, live looping, new effects, crossfades in the Arrangement View and a reworked MIDI editor.
